Most of the students and teachers feel that the four-day school week provides them an opportunity for extra rest and a less stressful environment. Can you imagine going through the rest of the week having different school works to do? Dealing with discussions, quizzes, performance tasks and other activities on different subjects for the whole week, sounds ridiculously difficult, isn’t it? In fact, most of the time, we spend our weekend in making projects and assignments rather than spending time with our family. Additionally, the constant back-and-forth for students limits the amount of fun they can have. Let us face it, our best memories do not always come from the tests, quizzes or performance tasks we are dealing with. They are from the moments we remember having fun and where we experienced the motivation that we need as students.
We surely believe that when this 4-day school week will be implemented transportation costs will be reduced. Additionally, we believe that the range of the tuition fees or education costs will decrease, and that can be very helpful to the parents/guardians of the students. A 4-day class will be a great help in improving the academic performance of students by having enough time to accomplish all the school works and extra time to do an advance reading. One day less of class means a productive day for students and teachers to engage in different activities that cannot be done inside the school.
